Furnished, Two Bedroom Bungalow, Vegetarian kitchen/home

Renting for semesters to visiting academic families, who are comfortable in my fully furnished home. Plenty of fresh bedding, a well stocked VEGETARIAN* kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher and toaster, plus, much of what you need to live, besides your clothing and personal effects. How cool is that? Just bring your clothing and you are set. Try the upright piano, which so many guests enjoy playing!

The neighborhood has 99% walkability rating, with relatively frequent busses, (15 minutes) to several places, and I provide lockable parking for two or possibly, three bikes. The location, in West Berkeley, close to the Fourth Street shopping area makes an easy aerobic bike ride to downtown. I provide one normally available, street-parking place. Weekday, wi-fi busses operate in mornings to San Francisco. From them the view is wonderful. BART (the metro) is .9 miles away (1.45 km.).

My home has an addition built to the original house. I rent the original two bedroom home and live on the property in a separate addition, attached by a 5 foot common wall. My home is ideal for short stay rentals. Two days minimum for summer months and winter break; and longer, semesters, Spring and Fall. This August, 2020, ideally someone for the whole month. Quite frequently guests are families with small children (there are toys and books for said small people too!) and sometimes pets.

* In India there is a term "Pure Vegetarian" and this indicates that no dead animals, fish or birds have been in the pots or pans or on the dishes or utensils. I like to keep my home that way. Do what you want when not here, but respect the vegetarian nature of the home, meaning no creatures with faces eaten, stored or prepared in the home. The Oxford word(s) of the year are ‘Climate Emergency’, and a vegetarian diet is our direction, to survive as a planet. There exists a selection of vegetarian and vegan food prep books in the well stocked kitchen for your perusal.

About Me
A passionate and avid traveller who works in adventure travel and on recycling projects. I am happy to rent for semesters to visiting academic families, who are made welcome in my comfortable, fully furnished home. Plenty of fresh bedding, a well stocked VEGETARIAN* kitchen and pretty much all you need to live, besides your clothing and personal effects. How cool is that? Just bring your clothing and you are set. There is also a playable upright piano for guests who play. The neighborhood has 99% walkability rating, with relatively frequent busses, (15 minutes) to several places, and I provide lockable parking for two or possibly three bikes. The location, in West Berkeley, close to the Fourth Street shopping area makes an easy aerobic bike ride to downtown. I may provide one normally available, street-parking place. There are (too) infrequent wi-fi busses which go weekday mornings to San Francisco. From them the view is wonderful. BART is .9 miles away (1.45 km.). My home has an addition built to the original house. I rent the original two bedroom home and live on the property in the attached (by a 5 foot wall) addition. I usually do short term rentals in summer months, and semesters, Spring and Fall. Quite frequently, visiting academic families with small children (there are toys and books for said small people too!) and sometimes pets. This summer, I hope to find people who would stay a month. * In India there is a term "Pure Vegetarian" and this indicates that no dead animals, fish or birds have been in the pots or pans or on the dishes or utensils. I like to keep my home that way. Do what you want when not here, but respect the vegetarian nature of the home, meaning no creatures with faces eaten, stored or prepared in the home. The Oxford word(s) of the year are ‘Climate Emergency’, and a vegetarian diet is our direction, to survive as a planet. An extensive supply of vegetarian and vegan food prep books in the well stocked kitchen for your perusal.
